The Greater Goleta Santa Barbara Lion’s Club is excited to announce the upcoming Lion Ito’s Riceball Invitational Golf Tournament, taking place on Saturday, September 20 at Goleta’s Twin Lakes Golf Course. This event is a great opportunity for golf enthusiasts and those looking for a day on the green to come together and enjoy friendly competition, while also raising funds for a worthy cause.

The tournament style for the Lion Ito’s Riceball Invitational Golf Tournament is a two-person scramble, with participants being handicapped into one of three flights (A, B, or C) to ensure fair and competitive play. Teams will play 18 holes, with prizes awaiting top performers in each division, including 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards.

One unique aspect of the tournament is each team’s ability to select their colored tee shirt provided by Lion Dennis Ito and Lion John Pace. Additionally, players are allowed to bring a maximum of three clubs, and partners are welcome to share equipment. This creates an inclusive and enjoyable atmosphere for participants of all skill levels.

Following the tournament, all participants are invited to join a lively post-party at Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant on Orange Avenue. During the post-party, awards will be presented to the winners, and all golfers will receive a drink ticket and appetizers to further celebrate their achievements.

Not only does the Lion Ito’s Riceball Invitational Golf Tournament serve as a fun gathering for golf enthusiasts, but it also contributes to the charitable efforts of the Greater Goleta-Santa Barbara Lions Club.
